The world of board gaming has come a long way since Monopoly and the other games you grew up with. Gone are the days of 'roll the dice, move you piece and do what the board says'. Games today come in all shapes and sizes, with an incredibly diverse range of themes and styles. Literally thousands of new games are published each year, all over the world.
Modern games are typically designed to keep all players in the game until it ends, and offer many different paths to victory. Some games are co-operative, with the players all working together against the game itself.
Here are some of the most popular "entry level" games of recent years. A good place to find out more about modern board games is the website BoardGameGeek.com.
There truly is something for everyone! While playing some of these games you find yourself thrust into the role of a:
firefighter, saving people from a burning building
bean farmer, trying to get the best return for your crops
spy, hidden among the resistance, trying to bring them down
race car driver, burning rubber around the track
space delivery truck pilot, dodging meteorites and space pirates
